: Would anyone know how to call the Windows API function to paste the contents of the clipboard?
A bit confusing :) To move data from your Delphi app to another app via the Clipboard, you *copy* to the Clipboard, not paste. So, I wondered why you're looking for "paste" code?
If you *copy* something to the Clipboard in a Delphi program, it is available to all other applications, so it's not for exclusive use in your Delphi app.
If you *paste* from the Clipboard in a Delphi program, the contents of the Clipboard can come from any source, also from other programs.
